WWU Marketing Career Launch and Holiday Mixer


What is the career launch?

The Career Launch opens the door for current students to gain insights from established alumni in the field. Discover their journeys, snag tips on networking, brush up on effective resume and interview strategies, and nail the art of leaving a lasting first impression. The students get to speak in small groups with panelists and rotate.

The Holiday Mixer creates a laid-back, casual setting for all current/past students, alumni, faculty, and staff to bond and share favorite memories of WWU and the Marketing Program.
